European grants

Benefiting from the support provided by the European Commission

The Erasmus+ programme is the European Commission’s new programme in favour of education, training, youth, and sport.

01 Purpose

Erasmus+ focuses on three key areas:

  • individual mobility for learning purposes

  • cooperation and partnership in favour of innovation and the sharing of experiences

  • support for reforms in youth policies

02 Example

Nathalie wants to acquire initial work experience

Nathalie is 19 years old, and a pupil at the agricultural technical secondary school (Lycée Technique Agricole - LTA). As part of her secondary studies, she wants to acquire initial work experience abroad. She would like to take up a two-month placement at a riding school in Dublin.

Nathalie contacts the placement office at her school to organise the placement. Thanks to a mobility project at the LTA, Nathalie benefits from a scholarship amounting to 6,000 euros which will go towards financing her travel and her stay in Ireland.

03 Beneficiaries

  • pupils for periods of secondary education in a different country;

  • young people in vocational training and young graduates, for placements elsewhere in Europe.

  • Youth sector

  • 'Erasmus+/Youth in Action', the section specially devoted to the non-formal education of young people, is available for:
    • young people between the ages of 13 and 30, with no conditions regarding their training;

    • organisations and informal groups active in the youth sector;
